John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

"If the Moon Were Only 1 Pixel: A Tediously Accurate Scale Model of the Solar System"

 

I love aids for trying to grasp just how complex and big the universe really is! The tool I link above lets you scroll sideways through a scale model of the solar system. And if you scroll through the whole way, it takes about 17 minutes, hence the "tediously accurate" portion of the title.

 

After you take a look at that, read creator Josh Worth's FAQ for this gem:

 

Q: How big am I on the map?

 

A: 1/46 millionth of a pixel. But you’re the most important 1/46th millionth of a pixel.

 

I'd love to hear about any other aids that attempt to help us grasp the size or complexity of the universe!
